I know I’m not the only one who has bookmark preferences and proclivities. Mine have certainly evolved over the years. From where are sit today, these are my general rules.
- They must by paper
- They must have no metal, fabric, string, yarn, or any other 3D embellishment
- The thinner the paper the better–without being too thin
- Shorter is better
- Free is better
- I prefer location-specific bookmarks that remind me of a place or bookshop I’ve been to
- I like finding ones that someone else has used, rather than using brand new one
